I have been up for hours and hours but cannot find a way to root with the new 4.4.2 update but if I could only downgrade to 4.3 I could root is there any possible way to do this?

There is no way to downgrade once you accepted the update to 4.4, im sorry. Even if there was a way to root, you cannot downgrade back to 4.3

I just wanted to confirm that you can Odin back to MJ9 4.3 from the newest ND3 4.3 to regain root. This is for 4.3 bootlocked GN2s ONLY. It was quite painless actually, all my data was as it was before. I backed up to the internal memory using Helium just in case (since I lost root), but I was able use saferoot without issue and am now back to rooted. <br />

I had used Kingo before to root, so I am actually glad to use saferoot this time since I am planning to install SafeStrap and flash N3BULA over: stock soon.<br/>

Frustrating Newbie here. I have looked at prior postings before asking this question.

I have a Verizon Note 4.4.2 Kernel 3.0.31 dpi@SWDD5710#1... KST 2014

I have never rooted this phone before. Can I root this phone?
